Written by Michael Larabel in Software on 18 April 2017. Page 4 of 4. 5 Comments

C-Ray is a small multi-threaded ray-tracer but continues running much better with GCC over Clang.

Clang 4.0 seems to allow the LAME MP3 encoding performance to improve.

GCC 7.1 will be released soon so it will be exciting to see how it advances the GNU Compiler Collection stack. Stay tuned for more benchmarks soon; fire up Clear Linux if wanting to run the latest bleeding-edge Linux packages. Those wanting to dig more into these results can find them via this OpenBenchmarking.org result file.
